LGBTI+ Affinity group launches special schedule for next week
As a way of making employees aware of the importance of Inclusion and Diversity, EDP's LGBTI+ affinity group has developed a special program with initiatives aimed at combating LGBT phobia. Check out the projects:
Eternamente Sou Ligada em Você (I´m Eternally Connected to You)
The first initiative is Eternamente Sou Ligada em Você ', a distance volunteering action aimed at minimizing the impacts of social isolation for the beneficiaries of the NGO Eternamente Sou, which fights for an active, dignified and welcoming longevity for women, LGBT 50+ minorities, in addition to enhancing the rights and memories acquired over the years.
The interaction between EDP volunteers and the public served by the NGO will be through the telephone and social networks. This interaction will take place after participating in a training, given by Eternamente Sou, on the approach methodology and the filling out of a questionnaire.
Eu apoio a diversidade LGBTI+ (I support LGBTI+ diversity)
The ‘Eu apoio a diversidade LGBTI+’ initiative aims to support Social Organizations that serve the LGBTI+ community with financial resources to serve the public in this time of pandemic and greater isolation and vulnerability. Donations can be made to three Partner Organizations:
